40 cigarette disposal bins set up in various local beaches

Forty cigarette disposal bin units have been installed in various sandy beaches around Malta and Gozo to encourage people to be more mindful of the environmental surroundings. 

Forming part of the ‘Saving Our Blue Campaign, the bins form part of the ‘Don’t Litter with your Filter’ sub-campaign to deter people from illegally disposing of cigarette butts n beaches. 

Speaking about the initiative, Energy, Enterprise and Environment Minister Miriam Dalli said that cigarette butts are the most common type of waste which is found illegally dumped on beaches. 

‘They are made out of plastic and take up to 10 years to disintegrate. Furthermore, they end up in our seas and oceans’ she highlighted, urging people to make use of the bins and contribute to more sustainable waste reduction and environmental preservation.

Suffice to say, Farrugia’s popularity in the music scene was sent rocketing upwards, having many of his work featured by other artists such as Nicky Romero and even on international programs such as Love Island. 

Farrugia will be taking to the Isle of MTV stage tonight to perform at Fosos, sharing the same stage which massive artists like DJ Marshmello and French Montana will be using to entertain thousands.

However, COVID-19 had other plans and this gave them enough time to build up their skills and morale to take their shot this year. After placing second in Malta’s Got Talent, the crew will be taking two teams (yes, two!) to chase higher goals in Los Angeles, California.

Comprised of team members of all ages, the group has already proven to have what it takes both locally and on an International stage. And this next milestone is the culmination of all such hard work.

Speaking about the upcoming experience and the preparation that went into it, founder and head choreographer Cheryl Lofreda told MaltaDaily that: 

It has always been a goal of mine to represent Malta in one of the biggest dance competitions worldwide. This will surely be an experience to remember and cherish, & we look forward to sharing the stage together as a team.

The local group will be going head to head with some of the world’s most formidable dance crews. Coming out on top would make The MVMT World Champions for 2022 – no pressure!
